Second - if you put recent pics of yourself online, there shouldn't be any "Ewwws". Same with height - be honest, lying doesn't get you anywhere.
I always used recent pictures. I'll talk to a woman for a while, we'll meet, and she's automatically turned off. I also used my real height- 5'3".

Why do you want to be taller? I think the worst thing is to be tall and ugly. You'd be like a walking billboard for people to stop and stare at and you'd be more likely to be labeled creepy or scary. At least being shorter you can slip off into the shadows and keep your anonymity.

Never said I wanted to be taller. I just said that's usually a deal breaker for women. However, I think being taller will only help my dating prospects, not hurt it.

Then you look different on your pics as in real. It is just normal to put pics up where you look your best. But maybe your pics show you from a specific angle, where you have your head turned or tilted and you look very different in person?

My ex looks great on his pics because he always lifts the head up. But when you see him in real and the head is angeld normally, the whole face is taken over by his double chin. So in his case, I wouldn't wonder if people feel fooled.

I've never done anything to deceive. I guess I just don't look as good as I do on my pictures . Besides, my (very, very small amount of) successes have told me that I look just like my pictures. The failures always seemed disappointed, though. For example, I went out with a short (5'1"), very heavyset AA woman a month ago. She KNEW that I'm 5'3", yet still had an issue upon meeting me. Said I looked shorter than what I told her, even though it was clear that I was at least two inches taller than her. Her harping on my height went on for 10 minutes. I ended the date abruptly and decided that dating isn't for me anymore.

Beauty and ugliness change with time. In the past, they were connected to moral, virtue and behaviour and so on.

The truth is, there are many beautiful women out there that when you get the chance to known them they became quite unattractive or ugly: it's something i have learned with time. Easy, dumb, shallow girls with only pretty faces are not interesting. Sometimes they think they are interesting because they dress well or are popular, but over time that is just appearance: they are not interesting at all.
Those girls you hump, dump and pass.

You really thing very ugly face skinny women get more male attention than fat,attractive faced women?
Fat women are defiantly unattractive. Black men seem to be the only race of men lenient on fat women but most men in general would rather have a girl with a subpar face and slamming body vs a fat women with a pretty face.

That very true. Whats also true is that if an ugly man has lots of money its much much easier for him to find a partner then it is for an ugly women with money. I'm not talking a million dollars. If your pulling 100K a year or more your in the safe zone.

I get treated very badly customer service because of my looks.

Its the little things that add up that makes it seem like attractive people hate ugly people
I don't think they hate ugly people they just think there better then ugly people. It's a really stupid logic.

I remember when I was unattractive and some girl tried to make me feel stupid because of my looks but I ended up making her look retarded.

Of course I'm NOT 12. But IMO people place way too much attention on being attractive. Stand on a street corner tomorrow, you will see women who are only 5'"2"" with no boobies booed up you will see men who are short & chubby with wives. Where do you live where people have to be the young Brangelina to get couple up?
